"The Way You Do The Things You Do" as written by William Robinson Jr. and Robert Rogers....
You got a smile so bright
You know you could have been a candle
I'm holding you so tight
You know you could have been a handle
The way you swept me off my feet
You know you could've been a broom
The way you smell so sweet
You know you could've been some perfume

Well you could've been anything that you wanted to
And I can tell
The way you do the things you do, ah baby (the way you do the thing you do, the way you do the things you do)

As pretty as you are
You know you could've been a flower
If good looks were minutes
You know that you could be an hour
The way you stole my heart
You know you could have been a crook
And baby your so smart
You know you could have been a school book

Well you could've been anything that you wanted to
And I can tell
The way you do the things you do, ah baby (the way you do the thing you do, the way you do the things you do)

You make my life so rich
You know you could've been some money
And baby you're so sweet
You know you could have been some honey

Well you could've been anything that you wanted to
And I can tell
The way you do the things you do, ah baby (the way you do the thing you do, the way you do the things you do)

You really swept me off my feet (the way you do the things you do)
You made my life complete (the way you do the things you do)
You made my life so bright (the way you do the things you do)
You made me feel alright (the way you do the things you do)
You make me feel alright (the way you do the things you do)

    General CommentThis is such a great song! I love most of the temptations songs, but this is my favourite of theirs out of the ones where David Ruffin (I don't know if I spelled that right) wasn't the lead vocalist.

    General CommentThis song has some cool lyrics. Self-explanatory. But these hecka funny girls sing this song like its a country song, and they make me laugh. Oh, that Kathy.... I could marry Kathy. But nobody will ever read this so it doesn't matter.

    anyway, I like this song, especially:
    If good looks can cause a minute
    You know that you could be an hour
